Evolution of the surgical approach to female breast cancer: from reconstructive strategies to occult lesions instrumental identification

Russo A.


Early diagnosis of breast female cancer, achieved through the recruitment of screening programs and the availability of more and more accurate instrumental methods of second instance, such as stereotactic identification of suspected area and wire-guided biopsy, requires, at the same time, in spite of prognostic advantage, the complex matter of rehabilitation. This step today takes benefit from autologous reconstructive plastic chances and heterologous prostheses. Breast cancer represents the most emblematic example of results obtained in the treatment of oncological disease and it shows, at the same time, how technological progress deeply modified the global strategy for the cure of one of the most dramatic pathology of this present era.
